Oh I have one to tell that I just remembered!
So I was at a family reunion and with another cousin, was watching the children. Well Cousin went somewhere else, and I was left alone watching 2 four year olds and a six year old all by myself. At a pool. When I cannot swim, am only 17, and have never babysat before in my life. The three cousins were Little Cousin 1, Little Cousin 2, and OutOfTownCousin. Well OOTC got very anxious and wanted to go back to her parents. Fair enough.
I coax Little Cousin 1 out of the pool, and tell the two four year olds in a firm voice that it is time to go. It does the trick, and we head across the big 'yard' area to the pavilion.
Suddenly Little Cousin 1 stops in horror. "There's mud!" she wails. "I'll get mud on my feet! I don't want mud on my feet!"
By now OOTC is beside herself as she really really wants to see her mommy and daddy.
I kneel down to Little Cousin 1. "Okay okay I KNOW you don't want your feet dirty, but Auntie Nikko will wash them with a bottle of water when we get to the pavillion, alright?"
She nods, sniffling, and we continue on.
And that ladies and gentleman of ehell, is how I ended up washing my six year old cousins feet with a bottle of water at a family reunion.... think I can use this for story fodder at her graduation?
